Re: nursery interview tomorrow
Since you've all been so supportive, I thought I might recap the interview
for you. It seemed to go well, and the work as they described it didn't
seem too hard. They thought U of Guelph was in California. They are
strong, their background is in, trees and shrubs. And they indicated
difficulties with perennials. Ah! my opening! I'm stronger in that,
dazzled them with a few tips and techniques and successful examples. I
asked him if this was a growth area for them and they indicated it was, that
people were always asking for more. Even though that is not really what
they were hiring for, I gently explained the marketing aspects of perennials
and I was hoping they might consider my value for expansion down the road.
Well, whether they hire me or not, I came away feeling good about the
interview. Thanks for your support, folks!
